What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

Story

Don’t let our children face the 11-plus and a secondary school divide.

The general election is on 8 June and Theresa May is committed to new grammar schools if she wins. We're raising funds to fight this plan.

If the government expands selective education it will subject thousands of young children to stressful tests at the age of 11, and divide our education system in a hugely damaging way. Children are more likely to succeed when they are taught together in high quality all-ability schools.

The funds we raise with this campaign will support our work lobbying politicians, raising awareness of the problems with selection, and working with schools, local authorities and communities who want to avoid selective education.

Time is short: a new education bill may be proposed soon after the election. Comprehensive education works and we need to protect it.

Together we can protect our children’s education. Please donate to our campaign.

Melissa Benn,
Chair of Comprehensive Future

    The Alliance for Inclusive Education supports our crowdfunder. There are 1.7% of pupils with SEN statements across all schools, but less than 0.04% of these pupils in grammar schools. Selective schools reduce school choice, and segregate disabled and SEN pupils. We need inclusive schools that encourage social cohesion.

    Danny Dorling supports our crowdfunder, and worries that an 11-plus and school divide is a return to the 1950s. We need a forward thinking education system that encourages all children to achieve success.

    Thanks for all the support so far, we've already reached more than 30% of our target! We've had a few questions about how this money will be used. Comprehensive Future is a non party political organisation, and during the election we are solely concerned with raising awareness about selection and the effects of its expansion. The money we raise will not be used to fund any political party, and will be added to our general campaign fund. Our website has more news of our work: http://comprehensivefuture.org.uk/
